Copic/ProMarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and the weekend holds fun plans for you!  After all the hot and sunny days, we got a few strong storms last night.  Luckily, they were not as bad as predicted.  Things have cooled down some now and I'm hoping when I go out, the pollen will have been washed away with the rain.

I'm here, as always on  Fridays, with my DT card for this week's Copic/ProMarker Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Out theme this week is "winged things".  You can interpret that as you wish, but your image must be colored with alcohol markers (any brand).

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are a purple from my stash and the patterned papers are from the Memory Box Viola 6x6 pack.  The beautiful fairy is Fairy Tabia from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some Aqua Stickles to the stars on her dress and headband, Purple Stickles to her shoes and Glossy Accents to the bubbles.  I cut her out with my Cameo and popped her up on Spellbinders Lacy Circles and Classic Circles diecuts.  A triple-loop bow of green seam binding and three Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Copic/ProMarker Challenge and check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the DT!  Sadly, our friend and teammie, Linda Payne, has had to step down from the DT for now, but we are happy to have Jen Leeflang join our group starting with this challenge.  We hope you will inspired to play along this week!  This month's challenges are being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps.  One randomly-selected participant in our April challenges will win 5 digistamps of their choice from the Whimsy Stamps Store.  There are also lots of site-wide monthly prizes to be won when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Mo's DP2 Challenge #180 (things with wings)
Papertake Weekly Challenge (BINGO-I selected the first column: Glitter, Diecuts, Blooms)
Sunday Sketch and Stamp #151 (sketch)
